OverBot will be shutting down on August 17, 2018
I developed OverBot for Crit Cola in 2016 and made it available to the public on February 1, 2017. It quickly rose to become the best and most popular Overwatch statistics bot on Discord. I’m proud of the fact that OverBot amassed over 700,000 users. Other bots have since surfaced stealing the “OverBot” name in their attempts to gain in popularity, to little avail.
Blizzard has unfortunately made it increasingly difficult for developers to grab players’ stats. OverBot requires substantial resources to parse millions of chat messages each day and pull players’ stats, and although OverBot was loved by many communities, no donations were ever received to continue its development and support. For these reasons, OverBot will be shutting down on Friday, August 17, 2018.
OverBot is a Discord bot for fetching and displaying rich Overwatch player statistics. I developed this bot for Crit Cola’s Discord, but I’m now releasing this publicly-hosted bot for use by all gaming communities on Discord for free.
Add OverBot to your Discord (not anymore, sorry)
OverBot can retrieve and display Overwatch statistics for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players.
I was underwhelmed by every other Overwatch statistics bot for Discord, so I decided to develop a bot for Crit Cola and other Overwatch communities to display rich player statistics as well as links to Overbuff, Master Overwatch, and players’ official Overwatch profiles. I’m confident that this is the best Overwatch bot available for free use on Discord.
For a live demo of OverBot, visit Crit Cola’s Discord.
